Blue Heus

Just sharing this month's layout for Scrap the Girls
This month's moodboard and inspiration was made just for me I'm sure. I love these colours. To be very honest it ended up challenging me to the last minute really. There was an never ending creative block in the house this month. I sifted through all my papers and that's a lot, I've been scrapping for about 15 years. I've had clean outs in that time but you know how you keep those special papers, ones that you just love but never seem to work when you pull them out, yeah them. And the newer more recent one's I just had to have. Well would you believe I didn't have one paper I could use that I liked or was the right shade I had in mind. 
Anyhoo three layout attempts later I waded through the two files marked 'Scrap Patterned Paper' and found some matches so this entire layout is from my scrap file (did you like that pun :D)

Here the moodboard this month.
challenge yourself and come play, we have the best prizes for playing along. 

Here's my take on the board.

Once I'd settled on what paper was going were I used texture paste to stencil the mandala in place.

When the paste was dry I carefully separated the edges of each paper and glued some core-creations card underneath, just letting a thin line of blue colour peep through.
I added some blue water colour pencil around the very edges of the design and blended it really well until I was happy with the hue.
Followed by placing bling on the dots and in the center of the floral designs.

Come on come, play along.
